Variability in the feeding value of the Indonesian corn harvest
With current high ingredient prices, better utilisation of corn becomes more important than ever. Corn quality depends on a complex interaction between both intrinsic and extrinsic characteristics of the grain. Crops with different genetic backgrounds exhibit variations in nutrient content.
Danisco's Avicheckâ„¢ Corn service was developed to measure the key parameters that influence corn feeding value for poultry and quantify the additional energy that can potentially be released by the addition of Danisco's enzyme solution, AvizymeÂ® 1502 (xylanase, amylase and protease) to corn-based diets. Through extensive research, Danisco has identified several parameters that influence the degree to which this unique enzyme combination can improve the energy digestibility of corn.
The use of exogenous feed enzyme technologies, such as the carefully selected balance of xylanase, amylase and protease in Avizyme 1502, in association with analytical tools and prediction models, can help the nutritionist to extract maximum value out of the feed and achieve more consistent bird performance.
